Guest reviews for African Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa, Autograph Collection

5 out of 5

Lovely and Relaxing

After 19 hours flying going to Capetown --Arabella was just perfect. Our room was magnficiant -- view of the water and hills even from the bathroom! I had a golf lesson the golf pro and she is excellent teacher - I would recommend taking a lesson from her. Golf course was very nice -- they had punched the greens so they were a bit sandy but in a couple of weeks should be great. Go the spa - it was cool outdoors so I swam in the heated pool - very comfortable/ lovely -- had a wonderful massage. The trip to Gansbaii to watch the whales/seals/penguins was highly recommended. The travel representative was very helpful - gave very good advice. In Hermanus we would also recommend going to Burgandy Restaurant and the tapas bar next door (can't remember the name). And there is a wine tasting area - we didn't go there because we went to Stellenbosch but in retrospect we should have -- there are some excellent vineyards represented in Hermanus.
